Generation: 1

  1. 1.  Elizabeth St. John was born in 1605 in Keysoe, Bedfordshire, England (daughter of Oliver St. John and Sarah Bulkeley); died on 3 Mar 1677 in Lynn, Essex, Massachusetts.

    Notes:

    One of JTS's eleven proven "gateway ancestors." Sister to the Oliver St. John who was chief justice of England under Oliver Cromwell.

    "She…was known for her beauty, dignity and commanding presence. For a woman of those days she had received a good education which made her the fit companion of the scholars and statesmen who were her relations. Even in her old age she did not lose her youthful fondness for the great poets of England, Chaucer, Spenser and Shakespeare, with whose works her husband's library at Lynn was stored. It is clear from the circles in which she moved that she was well informed about current affairs and the rights of government and royal prerogative." [John Roger Scott Whiting, citation details below]

    She was a half first cousin 4 times removed to Henry VII, through descent from Henry VII's grandmother Margaret Beauchamp (d. 1482). By the same common ancestor, she was a half fifth cousin once removed to her contemporary Charles I, making her possibly the seventeenth-century emigrant to New England most closely related to a sitting English monarch.

Samuel (son of John Whiting, Mayor of Boston, Lincolnshire) was born on 20 Nov 1597 in Boston, Lincolnshire, England; died on 11 Dec 1679 in Lynn, Essex, Massachusetts; was buried in Lynn, Essex, Massachusetts.

    Rector of Odell, Bedfordshire.

    From The Bulkeley Genealogy by Donald Lines Jacobus (1933):

    (Rev.) EDWARD BULKELEY,D.D., second son of Thomas Bulkeley of Woore, Shropshire, by his wife Elizabeth, daughter of Randall Grosvenor, was born not far from 1540. He matriculated pensioner from St. John's College, Cambridge, Michaelmas, 1555; Scholar, 1555; B.A., 1559/60; M.A., 1563; B.D., 1569; D.D.. 1578; Fellow, 1560. He obtained the rectorship of Odell in Bedfordshire, probably in 1571. He "compounded" for the living at Odell, 6 Mar. 1571/2, as is shown by the Bishops' Certificates of the Diocese of Canterbury. This means that he then paid to his superior his first year's salary, as was then the established practice in the English Church. [...]

    It is very difficult to learn much of the personal history of a minister who lived in the sixteenth century and who, by the very nature of his calling, did not figure in the political annals of his generation. He was Prebend of Chester, 1574; of Westminster, 1583; of Lichfield, 1594; and was Vicar of St. Mary, Shrewsbury, 1578-82. We know that he was one of the commissioners appointed by the Bishop of Lincoln in 1608 for the 'Levye of Armour' in Bedfordshire among the clergy.

    We owe to the late Col. C. E. Banks the following interesting item, from Shrewsbury Corporation Record, Burgess Roll, 1580: Edward Bulkeley of Shrewsbury, professor of theology, son of Thomas, admitted burges and has issue: Nathaniel, aged 6; Mary, aged 13; Frances, aged 12; Judith, aged 10; Martha, aged 8; Deborah, aged 5; Dorcas, aged 3; Elizabeth, aged 1. [...]

    Dr. Bulkeley was a moderate Puritan; he resigned his pastorate in 1609, probably because of increasing age, and died at Odell early in Jan. 1620/1. His burial on 5 Jan. 1620/1 was entered in the Odell registers by his son Peter, who had succeeded him as Rector.
